"Didja Miss Me?!" has been a centerpiece of Muzzins' live show each of the four times I've seen them so far, but seeing how their live show is mostly improvised, it's been different each time I've heard it. The song is finally available as a studio recording, and it's now a fifth version of what might be my favorite of their songs. The lyrics and the killer bass line remain intact, but the studio version has an unexpected aggression to it at points. "Didja Miss Me?!" cycles through some genres, which is what Muzzins tend to do in their songs. This one starts off as a funk jam, morphs into an 80's style stadium rocker (think INXS or Depeche Mode at their peak), eases its way into a slinky electroclash song, crashes into industrial, and switches to a monster dance jam, and ends with some New Age. This one is always one of their most fun songs live, and the recorded one is going to make you buy a ticket next time they swing around.
